This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western
Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Breezy to windy conditions will increase today as a strong upper
level disturbance begins to impact the region. The strongest winds
are expected across areas north of I-70 with the peak gusts
occurring by late morning and continuing through this evening.
Travel may be difficult, especially for high profile vehicles.
Scattered showers will develop this afternoon and evening, mainly
over the northern mountains.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Breezy to windy conditions will persist into the late week period
under the continued influence of the strong upper level
disturbance. A return to more unsettled weather as well as a
significant cool down is looking probable by late this week as a
cold front treks through the region which should lead to snow
levels lowering in the mountains going into the weekend,
especially further north.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not expected today or tonight, however
spotters are encouraged to report excessive wind or any observed
wind related damage to the National Weather Service in Grand
Junction.
